Equal Opportunity Assassinator

Raymond Hunter Geisel, 22, was arrested by the Secret Service on Saturday in Miami and was ordered held at Miami's downtown detention center without bail Thursday by a federal magistrate.

A Secret Service affidavit charges that Geisel made the threat during a training class for bail bondsmen in Miami in late July. According to someone else in the 48-member class, Geisel allegedly referred to Obama with a racial epithet and continued, "If he gets elected, I'll assassinate him myself."

Obama was most recently in Florida on Aug. 1-2 but did not visit the South Florida area.

Another person in the class quoted Geisel as saying that "he hated George W. Bush and that he wanted to put a bullet in the president's head," according to the Secret Service. To read more, click here

At least he's not being partisan about it, right? Eye roll. I'm really curious who'd have to win for this guy to not want to kill them. Maybe he has a "boys don't hit girls" mindset, but somehow I doubt that.

I'm so waiting for the first black man to become the president of United States. But now I'm afraid that some idiot will shoot him dead the minute he steps into power.

Dito Helena. Same fear here.

Um... I'm guessing he'd hit the girl, too.
